I wasn't exactly sure where to post this, but here it goes...
When I first got my new Inspiron 8600, it had a feature on it that popped up a message window telling me when Caps Lock was On or Off. It was a little yellow box in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. A couple of days ago I replaced Windows XP Home with XP Pro on my computer and had to reload everything. I've successfully restored everything to how it was before my OS reload, but I still can't figure out how to enable the Caps Lock notifications that I was seeing when I first got the system. Does anyone know where I might go to enable/disable this feature? Is there any Dell pre-loaded software that controls this that I should load?
Thanks, David Savage
Yes, I did install the QuickSet program and I can't find the described feature in any of its options. Any other suggestions?
Hello Chrisi Dell 8600,
Welcome to the Dell Community Forum,
Is it a chance that you're using an external Keyboard with your system? If so you may want to check the software that came with it, a cap lock icon in your sys tray may indicate that software for an external keyboard maybe installed on your system. Hope that this helps.

Solution for me:
I found the following page that offers registry files which amend/insert a scancode for the Keyboard Layout to twist the issue in a way you want to have it:
Worked fine for me. No Caps-Lock after reboot. I assume that it can be done the other way round. Do a registry-backup before you applying any changes!
In the end it seems to have nothing to do with Dell.
